School Districts Empower Energy Advocates. We Can Make a Difference!

And it can be easy. And educational. And fun!

Energy conservation is trending. From individuals to businesses, right up to our government, it’s apparent that we must be smart with our energy consumption—our environment and economy depend upon it. And with as much as 30% of a school building’s total energy use going to waste, that means there’s a lot we can do to help.

Schools seek to do just that by empowering the student body, as well as faculty and staff, to become ENERGY ADVOCATES. This allows us, as building OCCUPANTS, to support building CARETAKERS in their quest to make a building more energy-efficient.

Within each month’s Energy Focus, conservation tips and tools will be presented to let students know how to recognize and prevent energy waste.

Each month we’ll learn of something new to seek out. From lighting to HVAC, from plug load to break shutdowns, everyone can work together toward a more efficient school building.

Let’s discover the STARs within us and advocate for better energy use!
